Mosaic Shut Down Again


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Mining activities came to a
screeching halt Friday after-
noon at Mosaic's South Fort
Meade extension in Hardee
County after a U.S. District


judge issued another prelimi-
nary injunction banning the
company from conducting any
mining work until a final ruling
on the case is reached.
Judge Henry Lee Adams
issued the injunction one day


after his previous injunction
expired.
A federal appellate court
overturned his previous prelim-
inary injunction, but allowed it
to remain in effect for 90 days
and sent the case back to him


for further review in April.
Adams was instructed by the
appellate court in Atlanta to
issue a new and final ruling
based on the full record of the
case. Instead, Adams issued
another preliminary injunction


CRAZY FOR CRANES!


while he is still making a final
decision on the case.
The three plaintiffs in the
ongoing lawsuit, The Sierra
Club, People Protecting Peace
River (3PR) and Manasota 88,
filed for the injunction in June
after Mosaic announced its
plans to mine 700 acres of
uplands on the property while
the legal proceedings contin-
ued.
Adams sided with the envi-
ronmental groups and issued
the preliminary injunction, stat-
ing, "without preliminary in-
junctive relief, the plaintiffs and
the environment will suffer
irreparable harm."
Adams instructed Mosaic
that the injunction "is in effect
until the final ruling on the mer-
its."
Mosaic is preparing to file an
appeaJ with the appellate court
in Atlanta to seek a stay of the


preliminary injunction so it can
continue operating.
If a stay is not granted,
Mosaic is anticipating the legal
process of the case to take
between 12 to 24 months before
a final decision is reached,
according to a press release
issued by the company.
Adams has given no timeline
as to when he will issue a final
ruling, other than stating the
court is well aware that the mat-
ter is time sensitive and there-
fore will expedite its merits rul-
ing accordingly.
Richard Mack, Mosaic's
executive vice president and
general counsel, said the com-
pany is surprised and disap-
pointed by the ruling.
"The court's, ruling is incon-
sistent with the overall regula-
tory environment in Florida and
may bring significant hardship

Main Street Wauchula Inc. this week added two bronze crane statues to the fountain at Main Street Heritage Park as a
way to help promote Wauchula's mascot. The cranes were hand-sculpted and bronzed in Sanford, and stand a little
taller than life-size. With the help of Main Street Wauchula funding from members and sponsors and additional spon-
sorships from Mosaic, CF Industries, Alan Jay Automotive Network and Clifford M. Ables III, P.A., the about $15,000
cost was paid. An "unveiling" ceremony will be held during tomorrow night's Friday Night Live at 7 p.m. While the sculp-
tures were created by Mike Spindle of Alabama, a local artist has made a painting of the cranes in the fountain, and it
will be digitalized for use on promotional materials. "Meet the Crane" T-shirts can be purchased during tomorrow's
event and, ultimately, postcards will be made.

Man Faces 2




Capital Felonies

Accused Of Assaulting 2-Year-Old


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 43-year-old Zolfo Springs
man has been charged with two
capital felonies in the alleged
assault of a 2-year-old girl.
Dennis Randall Goodman Jr.,
of 803 Hudson St., was booked
into the Hardee County Jail on
June 29 and charged with two
counts of sexual battery on a
child. He currently is being held
there without bond.
Goodman is set for arraign-
ment in Hardee Circuit Court
before Circuit Judge Marcus J.
Ezelle on Tuesday.
The sexual assault of a child
that young is a capital offense in
the state of Florida. The Su-
preme Court, however, long ago
disallowed imposition of the
death penalty for sexual crimes.
If ultimately found guilty of
the charges as filed, Goodman
instead would face a mandatory
sentence of life in prison.
Maj. Randy Dey of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
said the allegations against
Goodman came to light when


Goodman
the child complained to her par-
ents. "She made a comment,
she said something they found
to be unusual, so they checked
into it," he described.
The parents notified the
Sheriff's Office.
Dey said he brought in.
Special Agent Sharon Feola of
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to perform a poly-
graph examination of the sus-
pect, Goodman, on June 29.

These gates now remain locked, keeping trucks and trailers away from the Hardee Livestock Market in Wauchula. The
struggling market first closed at the end of last year, reopened for a few sales and then closed again in April. Janice
Wheeler, the general manager, then formed a new corporation and began selling public shares of stock in the new
company in hopes of keeping the market open. An escrow account was established for the new company and admin-
istered by local attorney Ken Evers. Evers said any money placed in escrow under his care was returned last week.
Attempts to contact Wheeler about the current and future status of the market have been unsuccessful.

4 Kelly's Column
5 By Jim


President Barack Obama will be 50 on Aug. 4.
In a recent interview with AARP magazine he said his birthday
wishes are a much lower unemployment rate and lower gasoline
prices.
He said the American economy has been growing for two
years, adding two million private sector jobs but added,
"Traditionally it takes a little longer to come out of a financial cri-
sis than out of a normal recession."
The president said he has lost a little speed and takes a4ittle
longer to heal up from basketball injuries. For his 49th birthday the
president, his friends, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and other All-
Star players played a pickup game.
He said seniors are entitled to Social Security and Medicare
because they paid taxes into these programs.
Many of today's seniors are healthier than past generations.
"When my grandparents were in their 50s, they were already
'older.' They drank, they smoked, they didn't exercise, they ate all
kinds of stuff."

AARP reports tomatoes are a health wonder, providing
Ivcopene and an acid that.help ti seat~\g .'ot..cance.,
hea'r(Biease, 6a ii6po iid'~j bees. t threee or
more servings week are optimal.

The Democratic Party has sent me a copy of President
Obama's birth certificate.
Barack Hussein Obama II was born Aug. 4, 1961, at 7:24 p.m.
at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu,
Hawaii. His parents are listed as Barack Hussein Obama, 25, uni-
versity student, African race, born in Kenya, East Africa, and
Stanley Ann Dunham, 18, no occupation during pregnancy,
Caucasian race, and born in Wichita, Kansas.
Is America the land of opportunity? Yes. A bi-racial baby born
nearly 50 years ago to parents without wealth and from two differ-
ent countries became president. Next question can he be re-
elected?

On a hunting trip earlier this year a Republican friend asked a
fellow hunter to list one good thing President Obama has done
since being elected.
The.president's 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina recently
listed these four "victories" over the past 2'! years':
1. "He took office in the middle of the worst recession in our.
lifetime' But today an economy that was shrinking at about six per-.
cent when the President took office is now growing again.
2. "The President signed the Affordable Care Act and now
insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because of
pre-existing conditions or drop Americans' coverage when they get
sick.
3. "When the President took office, there were 180,000 troops
in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now the combat mission in Iraq has
ended. Afghanistan will be fully responsible for its own security by
2014, and there will be fewer than 100,000 American troops in the
two countries by the end of the year.
4. "He ended 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'- defended Planned
Parenthood when Republicans threatened to shut down the govern-
ment unless it was defunded, and signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act to
restore basic protections against pay discrimination against women
and other workers."
When the November 2012 election comes many people will
vote based on how the economy is doing and which candidate
offers the best hope for the near-term future.
Most Hardee County voters are-conservative by nature and
Christian by religion and generally have elected Republican candi-
dates in recent elections.

A recent AARP Bulletin, editor Jim Toedtman recalled his
childhood savings account and the Citizens Sayings,and Loan teller
George Wanner, his first "financial advisor."
Wanner's four savings essentials were: -
1. Regular deposits small steps achieve big goals.
2. Compound interest there is nothing r morereliable if you
are a saver or more costly for borrowers.
3. Lockbox my bank required a key which made with-
drawals difficult, just as they should be.
4. Balance deposits should exceed withdrawals. You get in
trouble if they don't.
r Toedtman quoted U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan at a Senate Budget Committee hearing on Jan. 25,
2001, that the federal government faced a $5.6 trillion budget sur-
plus over the next decade and that the nation needed a tax cut.
Congress cut taxes then but 10 years later in 2011 the annual
federal budget has a large deficit and the national debt has grown.
Congress and President Obama are now working hard to reduce the
budget deficit and tame the growing debt. Congress is not bound by
law to pass a balanced budget, and Uncle Sam has printing presses
that can print more money.

AARP reports America has about 16,000 golf courses and that
61 closed in 2010. Hardee County has three golf courses. Mosaic
is building two new golf courses in south Polk County as a big part
of their Streamsong project on mined land.
One Deerfield Beach golf course that closed became a.ceme-
tery on one end and a recreational park (ball field and playground)
on the other end.

to our .employees and local
communities," he said.. --:
-Company spokesman.Russell.
Schweiss said Mosaic strongly
believes the court's ruling is
wrong.
"This extreme activism is
directly harming people and the
economy of Central Florida,"
he said. "We're moving to get
this before the Court of Appeals
as quickly as possible."
As it stands now, Mosaic is
out of permitted land to mine,
except a small parcel keeping
one of its four draglines occu-
pied in Polk County. The other
three have been moved south
across County Line Road into
Hardee County and must now
idly sit and wait.
The fate of the roughly 140
employees of the mine is
unknown, as Mosaic is awaiting
the possible intervention of the
appellate court and exploring
other possibly alternatives.
The company was forced to
lay off most of its workers when
the mine was shut down last
year, when Adams' issued the
first preliminary injunction.
The injunction states Mosaic
"is enjoined from conducting
any activities in reliance to
Corps Permit SAJ-1997-4099,
including but-not limited-.to any.
ground disturbance, excavation,
dredging, filling or other alter-
ation of jurisdictional waters of
the United States at the South
Fort Meade Extension Site."
The ruling, continued, "The':
public interest favors the
issuance of a preliminary
injunction to protect these
resources and the natural envi-
ronment and maintain the status
quo until .this case can be
resolved on the merits."
Adams stated any harm done
to Mosaic would be self-inflict-
ed because the company had'
ample time since the beginning
of the lawsuit in June of 2010 to.
modify its federal mine plan
and National Environmental
Policy Act analysis as well as
revise any other state or local
permits necessary to go for-
ward.
The South Fort Meade Mine
accounts for about 30 percent of
the company's phosphate pro-
duction and about four percent
of the phosphate produced
around the world each year,
according to Schweiss.
Mosaic is exploring alterna-
tives, including increasing pro-
duction at its three other Florida
mines, importing rock from the
company's Miski Mayo joint
venture in Peru or buying phos-
phate rock from third parties.


For Great Apes, and canoe or
bicycle rentals. Local artists
Louise Weis, Oneita Revell and
others will display their art.
Peace River Cleanup Days,
Spring Fest, cattle ranching and
agriculture, cowboys, sharks
teeth, a boat race, rubber duck
race, estuary trails and other
festivals will highlight all the
natural wealth and activities
that make Hardee County
unique.
All this will bring business to
Wauchula and Hardee County.
Both new and existing business
will growato meet the increased
demands of all these activities
(see attached chart for possibil-
ities). A national and interna-
tional website will attract visi-
tors from the far spaces.
Hardee County is one of only
seven in the state not to have a
bed tax, which brings addition-
al revenue to the county.
Visitors will need gas, food and
lodging.
Dr. Richard Weiskoff, an eco-
nomics professor at University
of Miami, said the estimated
20,000 annual visitors the eco-
tourism group will bring to the
county is very conservative. He
has been a frequent visitor to
the county since testifying on
the negative economic impacts
of the regional landfill at public
hearings. He said he has "fallen
in love" with Hardee County.
"It's a giant natural theme
park," he said.
Sweetwater resident Nancy
Craft said in the 50 years she
has lived in the county, "it's the
most exciting, well-planned,
diversified program she has
ever seen here. Get excited, get
behind it," she urged.
The non-profit group has run
into a bit of a snag, however. Its
funding request doesn't meet
the criteria 'f either county eco-
nomic development group, the
Industrial Development Au-
thority or the Economic Devel-
opment Authority. IDA uses the
Mosaic Mining Agreement
monies for economic develop-
ment infrastructure and similar
projects. EDA uses the county's
severance tax money from
active mining in Hardee
County.
Peace River has recently ap-
plied for EDA funds. EDA,
which was set up by the 2004
Florida Legislature, has specific
requirements to use the money
for job creation and infrastruc-
ture. Peace River's application
for $200,000 startup money is
more operational expense than
either immediate job creation or
infrastructure, explained Bill
Lambert, Hardee County Ec-


;t


Narrowed To 6


place, commissioners decided
to go ahead and interview all
six. Leary and Miranti were
both previously in contention.
Leary had been interviewed and
Miranti scheduled for an inter-
view when the majority of the
previous commission were re-
lieved of office. Leary and
Miranti will be interviewed on
Aug. 9, beginning at 4 p.m.
When background checks are
received on the remaining four
candidates, they will also be
scheduled for interviews, hope-
fully in early to mid-August.
The commission search
began last August, when then-
city manager Rick Giroux was
terminated after several weeks



onomic Development Director.
He said he was excited about
the potentials for the Peace
River program and is pursuing a
feasibility study as directed by
his bosses, members of the IDA
and EDA. He and others have
already met with several mar-
keting experts for their input on
how feasible this type of project
is for this county.
Lambert said that part of the
application for severance tax
dollars tries to determine if the
business or organization has
enough other resources to be
sustainable on its own. Having
startup dollars would be one
indication of that. Enterprise
Florida recommends that appli-
cants have buildings and fi-
nances to back their request for
funding for a specific job cre-
ation or infrastructure request.
Ranking for EDA projects is
done to get the community feel
on which are most important to
the community. "It's a matter of
stewardship. These are quasi-
public monies. They are not ad
valorem tax dollars, but we
have to be responsible in their
use to bring busiries to Hardee
County," said Lambert. He
hoped Peace River could amend
its application to include more
infrastructure, job creation and
capital dollars.

"The polygraph showed some
deception," Dey alleged. After
the polygraph, Goodman was
interviewed by sheriff's Det.
David Drake.
According to an arrest report
filed by Drake, Goodman
admitted "he had touched the
young child ... on at least two
separate occasions." At the time
of both incidents, he wrote,
Goodman was 43 and the little
girl was 2.
The first alleged incident
occurred around the time of the
Pumpkin Festival in Manatee
County last October. The sec-
ond occurred following a trip to
a large specialty store just
opened in Tampa.
Both alleged assaults took
place in Zolfo Springs, Dey
said.
Drake wrote that Goodman
said he "rubbed" the 2-year-old
on top of her clothing "for a
brief period of time." Then, the
detective went on to allege,
Goodman admitted he did not
stop there.
Dey said the child was pene-
trated with a finger.
"He claimed it was out of
curiosity," Drake-wrote in his
arrest report. "He stated that he
knew it was wrong, that was the
reason" he was "brief."
Dey commended Feola and
the FDLE for the assistance
given in this case.
Further, he lauded the parents
for being sensitive to their
child's behavior and words.
"Parents need to listen to
their children," said Dey. "They
need to be good parents, and
their children need to not be
with just anyone."
Dey said he investigated sev-
eral such allegations during his
tenure as a special agent with
the FDLE, and went on to
declare, "It's amazing, I found
in interviews with suspects, it's
amazing how these sexual
offenders get such easy access
to children."

FCAT: State Outscores Hardee


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
The Florida Department of
Education recently released this
year's Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores. Hardee
County's fourth graders as a
whole outscored the statewide
average in math.
All other districtwide scores
were not up to the state's stan-
dard. Individual schools and
grades, however, sometimes
beat the state.

State Scores
The state's scores for reading
are fourth grade, 71; fifth grade,
69; sixth grade, 67; seventh
grade, '68; eighth grade, 55;
ninth grade, 48; and 10th grade,
39.
Math state scores are fourth
grade, 74; fifth grade, 63; sixth
grade, 57; seventh grade, 62;
eighth grade, 68; and 10th
grade, 71.
Science state scores are fifth
grade, 51; eighth grade, 46; and
11th grade, 40.
How the individual schools
compared to their own scores
last year and then to this year's
state standards follows.

Bowling Green Elementary
Fourth graders went from last
year's 72 to 67 in reading,
which is four percentage points
lower than state; and from a 60


to 67 in math, but seven per-
centage points lower than state.
Fifth graders scored a 55 this
year from last year's 53 in read-
ing, but 14 percentage points
lower than state; from a 63 to
60 in math, three percentage
points lower than state; and in
science, from a 31 to 35, but 16
percentage points from state.

Hilltop Elementary
Fourth graders went from last
year's 88 to 75 in reading, but
that is four percentage points
higher than state; and from an
87 to 88 in math, 14 percentage
points higher than state.
Fifth graders scored a 79 this
year, improving from last year's
58 in reading, and 10 percent-
age points higher than state;
from a 58 to 64 in math, one
percentage point higher than
state;.and from a 38 to 52 in sci-
ence; also one percentage point
over state.

North Wauchula Elementary
Fourth graders went from last
year's 81 to 59 in reading, 12
percentage points lower than
state; and from an 82 to 80 in
math, six percentage points
higher than state.
Fifth graders went from last
year's 49 to 69 in reading,
achieving the same score as
state; from a 53 to 57 in math,
six percentage points lower


than state; and from a 37 to 44
in science, seven percentage
points lower than state.

Wauchula Elementary
Fourth graders went from last
year's 77 to 67 in reading, and
four percentage points lower
than state; and from an 83 to 77
in math, which is three percent-
age points higher than state.
Fifth graders made a 64 this
year, improving from last year's
60 in reading but five percent-
age points lower than state;
from a 68 to 72 in math, nine
percentage points higher than
state; and from a 42 to 40 in sci-
ence, 11 percentage points
lower than state.

Zolfo Springs Elementary
Fourth graders stayed consis-
tent with a 60 in reading both
last year and this year, 11 per-
centage points lower than state;
and from a 64 last year to a 70
in math, four percentage points
lower than state.
Fifth graders went from last
year's score of 52 up to 55 in
reading, but 14 percentage
points below state; from a 49 to
53 in math, 10 percentage
points below state; and from a
27 to 26 in science, 25 percent-

Red Snapper

Season Ends

On Monday
This summer's recreational
red snapper season in the Gulf
of Mexico is coming to an end.
The last day to recreationally
harvest red snapper is this com-
ing Monday.
This closure was established
to limit the harvest of red snap-
per in the Gulf and help rebuild
overfished stocks so that
Saiglers can enjoy better red
snapper fishing in the future.
More information regarding
red snapper fishing regulations
is available online at MyFWC.-
com/Fishing.


By BARBARA CARLTON
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Growers from Hardee and
surrounding counties gathered
at a meeting hosted by Krause
Grove Service to hear more
about efforts being made to
assist them in protecting their
groves from disease.
The spread of disease known
as Greening is threatening
Florida groves.
Greening is spread by an
insect called a psyllid. When it
feeds on the leaves, it injects the
disease, which eventually will
render the tree unproductive
and ultimately kill the tree. The
best way for growers to protect
themselves at the current time is
to control, the psyllid by coordi-
natingltheir eff6rt:' -. .... -
Steve Farr, 'ptoduction"WHan-
ager of Ben Hill Griffin Inc.,
has participated in coordinated
efforts since the idea arose more
than a year ago. He shared his
personal experience with psyl-
lid control through grower
coordination.
The Extension Service along
with local citrus growers is pro-.
moting the development of
Citrus Health Management
Areas (CHMAs) to suppress
psyllid over a wider geographi-
cal area. The concept for
CHMAs is to group together


commercial citrus growers in
proximity of each other to
cooperatively manage the
spread of citrus greening.
Members of the CHMAs
coordinate their pest and dis-
ease management activities to
control and minimize the move-
ment of the Asian citrus psyllid
and to improve area-wide con-
trol efficiency, which in turn
provides a level of economic
benefit to participants.
Four CHMAs have been
established for Hardee County.
.Greg Carlton, pest eradica-
tion bureau chief of the Florida
Department of Agriculture &
Consumer Services, discussed
the team effort. He explained
the CHMA program is a coop-
erative effort among his depart-
ment, the University of Florida
Institute of Food & Agricultural
Sciences and the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
This program will include
three-week cycles of psyllid
population counts in predeter-
mined citrus groves across the
industry. Data will be uploaded
into a USDA data base, where
the data will be transferred to
the IFAS CHMA website for
growers to access. Data will be
presented in both map and tabu-
lar form to show psyllid popula-
tions in each CHMA.


IFAS staff will be available to
assist in initiating formation of
CHMAs and providing recom-
mendations for coordinated
control measures. Division of
Plant Industry and USDA staff
will be performing the psyllid
counts in the groves.
Study of the psyllid by the
research community and indi-
vidual growers is helping to
make the task easier.
Lab testing psyllid indicates
the psyllids are attracted by the
sun. The current survey efforts
and in greenhouses where psyl-
lid are raised show psyllids con-
sistently go to the southeast cor-
ner, where the sunlight is most
prevalent. In the grove situa-
tion, the southeast corner isn't
just that corer of the block. It
is any southeast corner where
there is room for the sun to
shine, at a canal, road, skips in
trees or other open space. This
type of information will eventu-
ally help growers eliminate the
threat of greening and reduce
grower costs.
For more information about
the CHMA process, contact
Steve Futch, IFAS regional cit-
rus agent, at (863) 993-4846.
Barbara Carlton is executive
director of the Peace River
Valley Citrus Growers Associa-
tion headquartered in Arcadia.

Letter To Editor:

American Flags Should

Be Made In The USA


Dear Editor:
On the 4th of July, Indepen-
dence Day, I was in the hospital
due to an illness. When lunch
was served, placed on my tray
was an American Flag attached
to a little wooden staff.
When I saw this, it gave me a
good feeling inside. I am a vet-
eran and have always been very
patriotic.
When I was at events where
the National Anthem was
played, it caused chill bumps to
run up and down my spine. It
always reminded me of.the
thousands of brave Americans
who gave their lives defending
what our flag stands for free-
dom.
The next thing I saw changed
the food feeling to pure anger
- in bold letters were the
words "Made In China." This
made my blood boil to think
that the people we elected to go
to Washington, D.C., would
sink so low as for this country
to have to import our most pre-
cious symbol of our freedom.


What is wrong that American
companies could not.manufac-
ture our flags?
We are losing our freedom at
a very fast pace by borrowing
billions of dollars from China,
and then millions of dollars are
given to countries that hate us
while the people from China are
laughing at us all the way to the
bank.
As great as this country used
to be, we should not have to
borrow money from any other
country. the solution to that
problem is to stay within our
means.
Now the White House is try-
ing to raise the debt ceiling
again so we can borrow more
money.
The politicians who are reson-
sible for these things should be
tarred and feathered and rode
out of Washington on a rail.
Wake up, America, before it is
too late.

Faye Shackelford: A Life Well Lived


By BESS A. STALLINGS
For The Herald-Advocate
A service celebrating the life of Faye Durrance
Shackelford was held July 1 at New Hope Baptist
Church. The 86-year-old passed away June 28 in
Sebring under the watchcare of Good Shepherd
Hospice and her family.
Born May 18, 1925, she resided in Hardee County
most of her life. Her family has deep roots here. She
was the second of five children born to the Rev. Dow
G. and Nell Smith Durrance, who include Noveta
Beeson of Wauchula and Jean Hancock of Sebring, the
Rev. Milton "Tiny" Durrance (1923-2001), Faye
Shackelford (1925-2011) and Willard Durrance (1936-
2011).
In addition to her two sisters, Faye is survived by
one son, Marcus, and his wife, Linda Shackelford; one
granddaughter, Gloria Jean Shackelford; and numerous
cousins, nieces and nephews.
Along with her parents and two brothers, she was
preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, L.M.
Shackelford, who died in 1990.
Faye's father, Dow Durrance, was a well-known
area preacher who ministered until his death in 1976 at
the age of 77 while pastoring at Crewsville Bethel
Baptist Church. Sister Jean explains that their father
was a bi-vocational pastor since his ministry to small
churches never fully supported the family. His week-
days were spent in the fields farming and raising cattle
to Supplement his income.
Faye and her siblings often reflected on the Sundays
they would leave their country home east of Wauchula
(which later became the home of L.M. and Faye),
cram into the family vehicle and drive to church -
whether it be Limestone Baptist, Mt. Pisgah or New
Zion, to name a few.
This was often an all-day event, with members of
the church hosting the family of two adults and five
children for meals and an afternoon in their home.
before the evening worship service. This remains some
of their fondest memories. "Can you imagine having
all those extra mouths to feed?" quips Noveta at age
83.
In 1956, L.M. and Faye purchased Roberts Grocery
from Martin and Catherine "Cat" Roberts. It was
located on Wauchula's Main Street until it was
destroyed by fire in 1967, along with J.W. Earnest &
Co.
S&S Suprex later relocated to Earnest Shopping
Plaza. Marcus explains the naming of the store: one
"S" is for Shackelford and the other for Sasser. Luther
Sasser was in charge of the meat department for three
years before being bought out by the Shackelfords.
The name remained until it was sold in 2002.
When asked about his mother's retiring, Marcus


shares that it made her very
sad, and she missed the con-
tact with the public, especially
the children. She had devel-
oped no hobbies, so was at a
loss.
She did enj- the close
relationship with her family
members and granddaughter
Gloria Jean, who she called
the "light of her life." She was
particularly close with "Cat"
Roberts, and in their later
years they would sit on the
porch in their rockers, shell
peas and listen to Gaither
music. (Faye never would suc-
cumb to the use of a modern-
day pea sheller. She was cer-
tain it mashed the peas!)
S&S was always open six
days a week from 7 a.m. until
6 p.m. "Mama was very fortu-
nate in that she worked at
what she loved. She kept
gum and suckers in one of
the drawers in her office,
and the children would
gravitate to her door for
such treats as well as a
possible opportunity to run
machine," shares her son.
The Rev. Dr. Clay Smith
the son of the late King Ko
Prescott, spoke at her servi
of his memories of the stor

was-because of the "Then came the best part: sugar cookies and
Kool-Aid. That impressed me! After an hour,
she hugged us all and sent us on our way to big
church where we giggled, drew pictures and
fell asleep during preaching."
He said that as he grew, "Aunt Faye always
encouraged me, listened to me, loved me and
believed in me, often reminding me 'I. still love
you.' She always had time to listen and
maybe share a word or two of gossip!"
On a more serious note, he read from
SGalatians 5:22 about the Fruits of the Spirit:
love, peace, patience, meekness, joy, kindness,
self-control. "This list describes her life. She
lived in the Spirit and walked in the Spirit."
He concluded, "Her life and love are over.
She's left us a legacy. The work is ours now.
Everyone needs an Aunt Faye. Ask God to send
you one. Everyone needs to be an Aunt Faye.
Ask God to make you that someone."
Family and friends reverently left the service'
and walked across the road to the cemetery
where Faye is now buried with those who have
gone before. Her passing has left a void in this
county and in the lives of many; she set a won-
derful example for those honored to know her.

PAGE ONE


Replacing


The Coker Building


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
When the old Coker Fuel
Building comes down, a new one
will replace it.
Called Main Street Place, the
new building will have five incu-
bator business offices and a retail
showroom clustered around a
central reception area with copier
and other'equipment for the use
of the incubator business.
The plan for Main Street Place
was explained during the Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency
portion of Monday evening's
four-hour Wauchula City Com-
mission meeting. The commis-
sion endorsed the plan.
Calvin Bates, chairman of the
Main Street Wauchula Economic
Restructuring Committee, made
the presentation. On hand to an-
swer questions was David Noel
of the Small Business Develop-
ment Center (SBDC) of South
Florida Community College and
the University of South Florida
College of Business.
Other committee members
also on hand were Sophia Bon-
jokian, Michael Hutchinson,.
Scott Dickson, Megan Hutchin-
son, interim city manager Olivia'
Minshew and Commissioner
Keith Nadaskay. Member Jake
Crews was absent.
An 18-page overview of the
Main Street Place goals and
planning was available, along
with designs for the exterior and
interior of the proposed building.
Bates said the committee felt the
"highest and best use" of the
building would be as space for
new or start-up businesses, but
would accept expansion and ex-
isting business.
In its five-year plan, the CRA
has budgeted $355,000 for ex-
penses of design and construc-
tion for the building and hopes to
begin as soon as possible, said
CRA/Main Street director Jes-
sica Newman.
IncubaTor businesses who rent
space in the building will pay
about $1.40 per square foot,
about $282 a month. They will
have to meet criteria of a busi-
ness plan, provide quarterly


profit and loss reports, enroll in
the SBDC counseling programs
and attend at least two business
seminars a year. If needed, a
business could rent two incuba-
tor rooms. The design is flexible
enough to allow for this.
In turn, the business will have
the advantage of low rent,
smaller space, use of a confer-
ence room, break room, rest-
rooms, utilities, phone, internet
service and marketing assistance.
After two years, most will be
able to move out and establish a
larger business elsewhere in the
community.
The building will come with
nine to 12 parking spaces and
there will be an additional park-
ing area behind the building
which will have 40 spaces.
In other CRA business;
-Newman provided a general
review of the residential, com-
mercial and developer incentive
grants available through CRA.
-Commercial grants for Busy
Bees Child Development Center
on West Orange Street and
Ponger-Karnes Funeral Home on
West Palmetto Street were ap-
proved. A residential grant con-
tract revision for a Seminole
Avenue resident was also ap-
proved.
-The commission, acting as
the CRA Board also approved a
work order with Kimley-Horn &
Associates, previously approved
as the CRA engineering/planning
consultant. The work order, not
to exceed $21,300 will include
repavement and drainage
changes to the Town Center
parking lot off U.S. 17 South just
north-of the Main Street intersec-
tion.
The parking lot, drivethroughs
and driveways are owned prima-
rily by the city, but spaces in
front of the grocery store and
other businesses are owned by
them. Kimley-Horn and the
CRA will work with them in the
overall plan for the paving,
which is in the CRA budget this
year.

proposals for a three-year con-
tract to assist in inventory of the

PUBLIC NOTICE OF ALTERNATIVE SITE
FRAMEWORK APPLICATION
FOR FOREIGN-TRADE ZONE NO. 215

The Sebring Airport Authority, Grantee of Foreign-Trade
Zone (FTZ) No. 215, has applied to the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board requesting restructuring/expansion under the
Alternative Site Framework (ASF) within the General-Pur-
pose Zone of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 215. The ASF is an
option for grantees like the Sebring Airport Authority to re-
organize general-purpose zones to permit significantly
greater flexibility in the designation of new "usage-driven"
FTZ sites for operators/users located within the grantee's
"service area." The applicant is requesting the authority for
the grantee's proposed service area under the ASF to in-
clude the areas of DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, High-
lands and Okeechobee Counties and the Cities of Belle
Glade and Pahokee, Florida. If approved, the Grantee
would be able to serve sites throughout the service area
based the area's needs for FTZ designation. The Sebring
Airport Authority is requesting to include the following cur-
rent sites in the reorganized zone as "magnet" sites: Site
1 (1,893 acres) located at the Sebring Regional Airport
Complex, 128 Authority Lane in Sebring, Florida. The ap-
plicant proposes that Site 1 be exempt from "sunset" time
limits that otherwise apply to sites under the ASF. Zone
operations are used to improve the economic well being
of the local community in Florida by encouraging interna-
tional business by providing an FTZ that lowers the duty
rates for imports and exports. Public comment on the Ap-
plication is requested from interested parties. Submissions
(original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's
Executive Secretary at the address listed below. A copy of
the Application and accompanying exhibits will be available
for public inspection at each of the following locations: the
Office of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board's Executive Sec-
retary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S. Department of
Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room 2111,
Washington, D.C. 20230; and at the "Reading Room" sec-
tion of the Board's Web site, which is accessible via
www.trade.gov/ftz. The closing period for comment is Sep-
tember 6, 2011.

Hardee


Local Woman Selected For
B'ucs' Cheerleading Squad


Jacqueline Waldron, the
daughter of Bill and Arnell
Waldron of Wauchula, has
recently been selected as a
2011-12 Tampa Bay
Buccaneers cheerleader.
Waldron competed against
6ver 250 candidates to be cho-
sen as a member of the elite 34-
member National Football
League cheerleading squad.
The tryouts consisted of three
rounds of auditions and a three-
night training camp that includ-
ed a fitness assessment, dance
routine, kick line and solo per-
formance.
As a Buccaneers cheerleader,
Waldron will perform on the
sidelines during the team's
home games at Raymond James
Stadium and be very involved
with the Buccaneers' communi-
ty outreach. Throughout the
year, her schedule will be kept
full with practicing, performing
and volunteering for communi-
ty appearances and events.
"I am thrilled for this oppor-
tunity," said Waldron. "I'm
most looking forward to per-
forming before thousands of
fans, but it's a privilege just to
represent the team. I can't wait
to serve my community and do
my family and friends proud."
The women who make up the
Buccaneers cheerleading squad
are held to high standards and
are ambassadors for the NFL
worldwide.
"Jacqueline is extremely pro-
fessional," said 'Catherine
Boyd, the Buccaneers' cheer-

full-time job as a school
teacher, she has an extensive
dance background, and she's

but she's exactly what we look
for in an NFL cheerleader."
Waldron .was a 2005 honor
graduate of Hardee Senior High
School. She graduated cum
laude from Florida State
University in 2009, receiving a
bachelor's degree in elementary
education.
While at FSU, she participat-

Business Will Need Zoning Change


The largest fish is the whale shark. It weighs up to 15
short tons-more than twice as much as an African ele-
phant.


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A request for an extension for
a business to complete a Site
Plan became a bit complicated.
At the Hardee County Com-
mission meeting last week,
commissioners were advised
that in order to approve a Site
Plan for Easton Sales and Ren-
tal, it would require a Compre-
hensive Land Use amendment
and land development codes.
That could take up to six
months.
Kevin Denny, director of
planning and development,
explained that Agriculture-I
zoning does not currently allow
the heavy equipment sales and
rental business Easton wants to
have. The company plans td
remodel a concrete block struc-
ture on the property for an
office for its business.
A-I zoning, however, cur-
rently only allows agricultural-
related businesses, such as a
ladder factory. But much of A-l
zoning has a mining overlay
and mining-related support
businesses, such as the heavy
equipment Easton provides,


Greetings from Fort Green!
I am thankful we didn't re-
ceive four inches of rain like
parts of Tampa did, but we still
need rain in our community.
You can see the bottom of the
creek south of our home. It is
still dry. All the ditches in Fort
Green have been dug out and
are ready for a lot of rain. The
landfill needed dirt, according
to one of the workers, and so
they are busy cleaning out
ditches.
Others have filled the back
row of the church where Pat
Albritton and Jean Sadler sit as
they have been on vacation for
over a month! They will proba-
bly be there next week and I am
sure they had a wonderful time
at the lake.

mining, said Denny, who is
working on modifications to the
land use plans.
The commission approved
the six-month extension for a
temporary authorization for the
landowner while the permitting
process and site plan are being
completed.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-postponed ranking sever-
ance tax/economic develop-
ment application ranking until
the planning meeting tomorrow
(Friday) at 8:30 a.m. in order to
get more information.
-was introduced to new

ing and comprehensive plan
amendments, etc. The commis-
sion also were notified that Jose
Felice is the new ISS coordina-
tor and would be installing
boardroom monitors shortly.

agreement between Polk and
Hardee counties for coverage
immediately north of the Har-

Commissioner Grady John-
son asked if that met actual
costs. Choate acknowledged it
didn't, but "they come to us a
lot more than we come to
them." Johnson replied, "It's a

Choate agreed that it certainly
was. Polk County often sends a
backup ambulance unit and Fort
Meade fire equipment to assist
in Hardee County fires.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
asked if Hardee had the capabil-
ity to fight "a really big fire,

completed before the Oct. 1
deadline for transfer from
TECO (Tampa Electric Co.)
power.
-heard an update on the
negotiations for a possible set-
tlement before an Aug. 1 court
hearing on the D'Agostino
property/driveway dispute. The
city was ordered to provide a
road to his landlocked property,
but can't do so because of the
wetlands involvement. None of
the current commissioners were
involved in the original issue,
which occurred when Marcus
Ezelle was city attorney. He
will recuse himself from the
Aug. 1 hearing, which will be..
handled by County Judge Jeff
McKibben.
-discussed a recent news
article on the city manager
application of County Manager
Terry Atchley. Commissioner
Russell Smith felt it was unfair
in responding to rumors and
said he had been approached by
several people about any prea-
greement on who would be
selected as city manager. He
wanted to make clear that he
answers to the people and
would not be involved in any
such plan. Gary Smith said
"rumors will go away, but the
facts will stay."
-discussed again the request
of F.L. and Oneita Revell and
the First Methodist Church to
put a sign on their U.S. 17
North property to invite people
to the church on North Seventh
Avenue. It would take an
amendment to the comprehen-
sive land use plan, which
presently prohibits putting signs
on vacant property. It will be
considered in the next city
workshop.

Week ending July 10, 2011
Rain Improving Field Crop Conditions
Weather Summary: Cumulative rains from the past two
weeks slightly improved drought conditions. Areas rated by the
U.S. Drought Monitor as having extreme to exceptional drought
have decreased by three percent (47% to 44%). Drought ratings
continue to be exceptionally high, with 85 percent of the State
experiencing drought; whereas, this time last year, only five per-
cent of the State had drought. Recorded weekly rain totals for
Florida increased by 13 percent from the previous week (78.63 in.
to 88.67 in.). Thirteen of the 36 Florida Automated Weather
Network (FAWN) stations had rain levels of three to five inches.
Balm (5.10), MacClenny (4.87), and Clewiston (4.64) stations had
the greatest amounts. Topsoil and subsoil moisture levels estimat-
ed as adequate or surplus increased from 56 percent to 76 percent
and 51 percent to 65 percent, respectively. The Lake Okeechobee
water level, monitored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
,remained similar to prior levels and is currently at 9.91 feet.
Average temperatures ranged from one degree below to three
degrees above normal. Highs were in the 90s. Lows were in the
mid 60s tbolower 70s.
Field Crops: Frequent rains helped improve field crop condi-
tions, but row crops continued to show stress from drought. In parts
of Washington County, rains helped peanut and cotton crop
progress; whereas, in some parts of Washington and Jackson coun-
ties, peanuts were not developing due to drought. Peanut condi-
tions improved from the previous week with ratings of 2 percent
very poor, 25 percent poor, 44 percent fair, and 29 percent good.
The five-year average for peanut condition is 7 percent very poor,
10 percent poor, 26 percent fair, 44 percent good, and 14 percent
excellent. Peanut pegging increased to 50 percent, and is in line
with the five-year average progress. In south Florida, rains sus-
tained sugarcane affected by drought.
Vegetables: In South Florida, okra and avocado harvesting
continued as mango season wound down. The last of the tomato
shipments took place in west Florida; however, supplies were
insufficient to establish a market. In Gadsden County, preparation
of tomato fields for the fall season began. USDA, AMS market
movement consisted of avocados and okra.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, pasture condition was
mostly fair to good, an improvement from the previous week due
to improved soil moisture. Most of the cattle were in fair to good
condition, unchanged from the previous week. In the Panhandle,
pastures ranged from very poor to good condition, with most in
very poor to poor condition. Pastures have not had enough time to
improve following recent rains. The condition of cattle ranged
from poor to good with livestock needing to be fed hay as the pas-
tures had dried up. In the northern areas, pasture and cattle ranged
from poor to good condition, with most in fair condition. In the
central areas, pastures and cattle ranged from poor to good condi-
tion, with most in fair to good condition. In the southwestern areas,
pasture and cattle conditions ranged from poor to excellent condi-
tion, with most fair to good. Pastures were looking green and lush
in most places. Livestock were suffering from flies and mosquitoes
in many locations. Pasture grasses were recovering quickly except
where they had been overgrazed during the drought.
Citrus: Temperatures were in the upper 60s and lower 70s at
night and the mid to lower 90s during the day for the majority of
the week. Heavier rainfall continued during the week,,with all of
the stations receiving some rainfall. Amounts ranged from 0.61
inches in Belle Glade, to 5.10 inches in Balm. Exceptional drought
conditions exist in the southeastern portion of Palm Beach County-


Extreme drought conditions existed in Martin, St Lucie, and Indian
River counties and parts of Collier, Okeechobee, Hendry, and
Glades counties. Drought conditions were per the U.S. Drought

U.S. 17 Delayed Until September


By. JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Long-awaited four-laning of
U.S. 17 south from Zolfo
Springs will wait a few more
months.
Construction on the 5.4-mile
section from Sweetwater Road
to Seventh Street in Zolfo
Springs is now slated to start in
September, or even perhaps
October. The $21,732,440 proj-
ect was included in the list of'
projects on the screen for 2011-
12 fiscal year, which began July
1.
The first-phase of U.S. 17
funding is included over the
three years of the projected
length of the work. Contracts
are being completed for its con-
struction.
Meanwhile, engineering, and
right-of-way is starting on the
southern 5.3 miles from Sweet-
water to the DeSoto County
Line. That $40 million project
is on the state Department of
Transportation calendar for the
2015-16 fiscal year.
Reconstruction of the portion
of U.S. 17 from south of West
Ninth Street to north of West
Third Street is a little farther out


on the agenda. The northbound
U.S. 17 segments will be recon-
structed along the old railroad
alignment. It is in the engineer-
ing/design phase this fiscal year
and not yet on the five-year
plan for Hardee County.
A recent DOT press release
sets a road work report for por-
tions of five roads in the county
which are under improvements
or maintenance. They remind
motorists that fines are doubled
in work zones.
CR 663 from SR 62 north to
the Polk County Line is under
construction. Beside full-depth
reconstruction of the roadway,
there will be drainage improve-
ments, guardrails, signing and
pavement marking. Lane clo-
sures will be common during
the project, which will be com-
pleted about October.
Along U.S. 17 from Doc Coil
Road to County Line Road,
maintenance is under way with
edging and sweeping side-
walks. This will also entail
intermittent lane closures. Mo-
torists are urged to use caution.
Along SR 66, from Garza
Road to about 1,000 feet east,
there will be maintenance proj-

lane closures expected, mo-

On SR 64, from CR 663 east
to Golf View Drive, DOT crews
will be working on the shoul-
ders of the roadway. There will
be intermittent lane closures.
On SR 62 from U.S. 17 west
to Polk Road, there is shoulder
work being done, with intermit-
tent lane closures.
Work on various sidewalks
throughout the county, engi-
neering for resurfacing projects
in the next fiscal year, replace-
ment of the Griffin Road
Bridge, drainage improvements
at U.S. 17 and Will Duke Road

greater hurry, he stood astride two
tigers.
Before he had gone far, one tiger
went right and the other left. He fell
off, and the tigers enjoyed him for
lunch. To this day the Africans
say. "You can't ride two tigers at
once."
But some Americans try to.

From The Heart
By David Kelly


SUMMERTIME
By the times this runs, it will be mid-July. Truly summertime
in sunny Florida, and hopefully we have had some rain, too.
Growing up in Hardee County, we always went one of three
directions during the summer to cool off. North, east or west;
rarely, if ever, did we go south, excluding maybe a trip to some rel-
atives in Miami and southwest to the Lemon Bay/Englewood area.
Usually we would head west to Anna Maria Island to hop in
the Gulf waters or a swimming pool and beat the heat. I remember
taking long walks, catching fish, playing tennis and cards, and lots
of-swimming on that island. It also happens to be the place I first
kissed my wife. Oops, it's not mannerly to kiss and tell!
If we did not go west, we would head east. Again, southeast
doesn't count as south. I'd either head just a few hundred yards east
to the Peace River and canoe, fish and swim or I'd venture a little
farther to a small lake some people have called Lake June in
Winter. We've had family and friends with houses on this lake for
years. It's always been a great place to "hydro-slide," knee-board,
ski or tube. It's always fun running around on a wave-runner, jet-
ski or sea-doo, too! But my favorite thing to do is wade the shore-
line and fish about 30 minutes before dark, until the mosquitoes
have driven me back home.
I learned to wade fish from my dad. Several times he would

fish Lake Walk in the Water, Lake Josephine or others in the area
this way. Many times he would catch more fish than when we used
the boat. His favorite was an old black worm that was 10-12 inch-
es in length.
The other direction was north. We would head for North
Carolina or Atlanta, depending on which family I was with that
day. The North Carolina family would head to the Glennville area;
we headed up to Tennessee. too. These were great times as a fami-
ly taking in all the tourist-trap stops along the way, arguing over
whether we left the gift shop with the "Indian" tomohawk, drum set
or bow and arrow, or the cowboy pop-gun.
I remember mining for gold, going through caverns, hiking up
mountains, playing in ice-cold mountain streams, fishing at trout
ponds and lots more stuff I don't want my kids to find out about
because they will want me to take them to do all of it. We always
had a great time driving each other crazy.
This was back before seat belts and the like, so we would sleep
in the well of the old station wagon or practice throwing ourselves
back and forth over the seat as we fought over one toy or another.
As I'm sure now, our parents were agonizing over hearing one
more of us say, "I need to go" or "how much longer" or "I'm
thirsty."
As for the Atlanta family, we would always go to Atlanta and
stay in the Holiday Inn and watch three Atlanta Braves baseball
games, which I loved. Then, after the ball games were done, we
would spend the next couple of days at Stone Mountain. I'm not
sure what happened there, mainly because I was a total brat and
pain in the rear, so I've blocked that portion of memory from recall.
But I'm sure there are family members who can readily recall each
horrific moment in detail. I remember once being offered, well,
more like told I was going to be put on a Greyhound back to
Wauchula.
Our trips to Atlanta were ever so memorable and fun, again in
the station wagon albeit a different one. We hit every Shoney's
restaurant known to my dad, and now that I have two kids that can
eat, I understand full well the allure of "kids eat free."
We also seemed to indulge my dad and his love for the
Georgia Agrirama, now called the Georgia Museum of Agriculture
& Historic Village. They cleverly note, "Where the Present Meets
the Past!" I guess growing up in Wauchula on the Peace River, I felt
pretty much like I had a keen grasp on the past and I was always
looking toward the future. I didn't really see the sense in studying
the past, especially in Georgia during summer break.
However, looking back now I see a lot more clearly.
I was truly blessed growing up in Hardee County having two
families that loved me and invested a huge amount of time and
money in my life. I treasure the memories that we have made
together and the memories our kids are now getting to make with
each other.
I think summertime is a great time to be a family in America,
a great time to see each other's shortcomings and love each other
anyway.
So whether you float down the Peace River or venture out to
the Grand Canyon or up to Canada or maybe even go to Europe this
summer, remember to enjoy each moment you have, be thankful
for what you have been given.
God knows exactly what you need, He knows exactly where
you are and He cares deeply about where you are going, even dur-
ing the summertime.

Our Graduates
Congratulations, Class of 2011. You did it!
I remember my graduation back in 1981, which was 30 years
ago. One thing I can say is after that day it seemed we all went our
separate ways. Good thing we have high school reunions, where
you get to regroup again. Before you know it, you will be sharing
pictures of your grandchildren! Yes, believe me, time does go by
that fast.
So, what does it feel like to be out of high school? Let's ask
the graduates:
Lorena Badillo "It feels good, but I also feel sad because I
won't see my friends every day." Lorena just found out she has
been accepted into the dental assistant program at South Florida
Community College. Parents are Ciro and Rosa Badillo.
Vanessa Garza "To be honest, it feels scary right now. I'm
learning to do everything on my own and I was so used to depend-
ing on my mom." Vanessa plans to receive her associate of arts
degree at Santa Fe College in Gainesville. She will then transfer to
the University of Florida to continue her studies for a veterinarian.
Parents are Greg and Yvonne Garza.
Pedro Zamora "Being out of school makes me feel accom-
plished, for I know I worked with such intensity to be where I am
now. It also makes me feel incomplete, since I made a lot of friends
while in school and they all depart to different directions. But I
know it's all for the best." For his AA degree, Pedro plans to attend
the University of South Florida and major in chemical engineering
and minor in languages. He then plans to transfer to the University
of Florida or Pennsylvania State University to continue his studies.
Parents are Pedro and Felixia Zamora.
Gorge Ayala had a graduation party at his home in Bowling
Green. Plans are to go to college to be a mechanic.
I wish all the graduates the best in their continued education,
and remember: Si Se Puede!
Birthdays
Marie Chloe Castrejon turned 2 on June 1. Parents are Juan
Castrejon and Guadalupe Martinez. Proud grandparent is Lorenza
Martinez.
San Martin Herrera had a birthday June 5. He is 41.
Elizabeth Camarillo also had a birthday June 5. She is 9 years
old. Parents are Arnoldo and Azucena Camarillo.
Chevy Esquivel hit the big 50 on June 30.
I need more news from la Raza. Call me at 448-6449 or e-mail

Only two teams are still
undefeated in the 2011 Men's
Community Softball League.
Gilliard Fill Dirt's Dirty
Dozen and the Mosaic I Regu-
lators are each at 4-0 after two
weeks of play, Games on June
28 and 30 v.,'e rained out. One
of them was-oetween these two
teams, preventing a showdown.
TNT Nemesis is at 3-1, while
Mosiac II and the Peace River
Electric Cooperative (PRECo)
Legion of Doom are at 2-2.-
Following along are Los
Diablos, III Ranches and Team
Santarlas.

HOMECOMING
Nick came home yesterday. Drove straight through from
Tallahassee. Cost him a million dollars to refill the gas tank of his
car.
Pinewood County lay hot and dry and thirsty, like a kicked
dirty dog, right smack dab in the middle of rural Central Florida.
The once green and scenic but now parched brown and dusty little
agricultural community is surrounded by orange groves and cow
pastures for miles and miles around.
You don't hear much about Pinewood County in the news,
except for the times bizarre things happen there, as they tend to do.
Like the time the babies got switched at birth at Pinewood County
General Hospital, a boo-boo that was made into a quiclgly-forgot-
ten Hollywood film. Or the fact that the late Michael Jackson's
chimpanzee, Bubbles, had found a home at the Center for Great
Apes, a juicy tidbit of trivia that had writers and journalists around
the globe Nick among them licking their chops in anticipa-
tion of an exclusive, only to have their hopes dashed down to
despair by the soft-spoken but formidable center director, Patti
Ragan, who held the drooling hoards at bay with one hand tied
behind her back.
Nick drove through Flowing Wells, where he'd been born in
his grandmother's one-story, one-bath, wood-frame house, stopped
and got gas and cruised the three more miles to Wasahatchee. Nick
was the only person on planet Earth who still called Wauchula
"Wasahatchee," the town's original old Indian name. Nick liked the
rhythm of Wasahatchee, that it rhymed with Tallahassee, and he
liked the fact it was Indian.
His dashboard clock let Nick know it was 5:03 p.m. as he
turned into the Panda Restaurant on U.S. Highway 17. A panda
bear in rural Central Florida? Nick thought it was funny. Then,
Well, why not? The moon-walking chimp Bubbles had found his
way here. Why not a panda, too?
Wasahatchee, like the rest of America, was branching out,
becoming diversified, multi-culturalized. Oom gawa and moojaka,
Nick thought. Hip, hip, hooray!
A white Ford pickup with oversized tires was the only other
vehicle in the parking lot. Nick could feel the heat of the asphalt
through his shoes. Little dust devils danced around the big truck
tires. Smells of a nearby McDonald's overpowered the scent of
Chinese food. Nick walked to the front door of the restaurant.
There was very little traffic on U.S. Highway 17. Wasahatchee
groaned as she lay defenseless, hot and dny and battered, in the blis-
tering afternoon sun.

researched from the archival

Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ...

75 YEARS AGO
The temporary closing of the
Adult Education Program
recently resulted in quite a stir
and greatly increased the work-
load of the WPA (Works
Progress Administration) of-
fices here. The Adult Education
Program has reopened, with a
demand for commercial cours-
es, such as shorthand and book-
keeping as well as home eco-
nomics and art appreciation,
including home d6cor.

The Royal Theatre an-
nounced its penny matinee will
be held this afternoon. Children
12 and under will be admitted
for one cent. Anyone over that
age will pay 10 cents.

The sixth district of the
American Legion met here last
week at Herger Williams Post
No. 2. Mayor S.E. Ausley gave
the 75 guests a hearty welcome.
After the meeting, refreshments
of sandwiches, ice cream and
cake were served. An apprecia-
tive ovation was given Mrs.
Jerald Farr and Mrs. Carl
Hanna.

Emerson Clavel on West
Main Street has the latest G-E
thrift unit refrigerator with a

other models. It has forced-feed
lubrication and oil cooling in
both the flattop and monitor top
models, at prices as low at

25 YEARS AGO
After operating for over three
years without an executive
director, and several failed
attempts to raise the funds for
one, the Hardee County
Chamber of Commerce has
hired Maggie Butler, 32, of
Sebring to take the $23,000
position. She will relocate to
Hardee County by Aug. 1. She
succeeds Roy Wine, who
resigned May 15, 1983. He was
paid $100 a month plus expens-
es.

The Hardee County School
Board gave the preliminary go-
ahead to a proposed 7.061 mill-
age rate for the upcoming fiscal
year. The number represents a
slight reduction from this year's
7.157 millage, meaning taxpay-
ers will shell out $0.096, or
about a dime less for every
$1,000 of non-exempted prop-
erty valuation.
Two Bowling Green police
officers this week made allega-
tions against Police Chief Roy
Alderman, accusing him of
opening mail addressed to them
at the department address.
Along with City Manager Mack
Bryan, the three officers met
with State Attorney Jerry Hill
on Tuesday morning. Hill deter-
mined. there were no grounds
for filing any charges. Police
Sgt. Shafter Crawford resigned
Tuesday afternoon and Capt.
Jimmy Johnson's status was
undetermined. Alderman said
he opened all mail addressed to
the department as he felt he had
the right and obligation to know
what it was.

Beall's Department Store is
having a three-day pre-invento-
ry clearance sale. Men's Lon-
don Fog knit shirts are $14.97;
Arrow tournament knits,
$12.97; entire selection of
dresses 20 percent off; and jew-
elry 50 percent off.

10 YEARS AGO
After a four-hour meeting last
Thursday, a proposed fertiliz-
er/compost plant off Parnell
Road on the eastern edge of
Hardee County passed its first
step. Touted as an asset to the
dairy industry, a Major Special
Exception was nevertheless
opposed by growers, ranchers
and residents of the area. The
tentative site is in the middle of
880 acres. The Planning &
,Zorning. Board of Charle ,..
Nicholson, Fred Small, Peggy,.
Fraim, James Barncord and
Dan Graham recommended


approval to the County Com-
mission when it considers it
next week. P&Z members
Roger Conley, Bill Craig and
Vida Tomlinson had excused
absences and Chairman Don
Chancey declared a conflict of
interest as he represented
Agricultural Facilities Admin-
istration & Management in its
request.

The long-awaited opening of
the Wal-Mart Supercenter on
U.S. 17 is about to happen.
Ribbon-cutting for the 107,000-
square-foot store will be next
Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. Nine of


Baskets Of Roses

I glanced at the moon, in the dead of night
It seemed too soon, such a fright
To think that I would fall so fast
And I'm stuck questioning
"Will it last?"
SCan it be true, what my father told me?
Am I going crazy, because I want you to hold me?
Well go ahead, think me insane.
Well I'm not sticking around to play your society's games
I'm going to the fields, where we once ruled the sky,
But I won't go there, just to cry,
I'm going to pick a basket of roses,
Make a crown of them, take them home and
Look out my window and stare at the stars,
SGive up all hope, wonder where you are,
And if you know, the secret of this crown
Will you stay in that war, will you come back around?
Will we start a family, have children some day.
Will they have a father, will you please stay?
But I guess it's too late, to want this dream
Those words on the tombstone, I finally get what they mean.
A useless war, took you from me
Now you don't get to be a dad, and I don't get a family!
It's just not fair, it's just not right
Why should you have to die, in someone else's fight?
And as they lay you gently into the ground
I place on you, a basket of roses, made into a crdwn ...

Back To Basics
By lan Rice -
Gospel Preacher


WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BELIEVE IN JESUS?
John's writings about the miracles of Jesus were for our bene-
fit,
"And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His
disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written
that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and
that believing you may have life in His name" John 20:30-31.
Study of God's Word is essential, for "faith comes by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God" Romans 10:17. We must have
faith, because "without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he
who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a
rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" Hebrews 11:6.
That being said, belief is not the only requirement to accepting
Jesus as Lord. We read in John 12:42, "Nevertheless even among
the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they
did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue;
for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God" John
12:42-43.
James wrote, "You believe that there is one God. You do well.
Even the demons believe, and tremble!" James 2:19. And also,
"You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith
only" James 2:24.
Now, there is nothing here that suggests that man can earn sal-
vation through some work of merit, but God demands that we meet
His requirements to obtain it!
The apostle Paul preached, "Truly, these times of ignorance
God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to
repent" Acts 17:30. Jesus Himself taught "unless you repent you
will all likewise perish" Luke 13:3.
Confession is also a requirement set forth by Jesus. "Therefore
whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before
My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men,
him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven" Matthew
10:32-33.
Consider the account of Philip's teaching, "Now as they went
down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said,
'See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?' Then
Philip said, 'If you believe with all your heart, you may.' And he
answered and said, 'I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God'"
Acts 8:36-37.
Although these actions are revealed as requirements of God,
none of these actions are what takes away our sins.
Peter preached a very bold sermon on the day of Pentecost,
and said "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that
God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both.Lord and
Christ." Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and
said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what
shall we do?"
Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be
baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and
you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to
you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the
Lord our God will call" Acts 2:36-39.
After obeying the Gospel call, one must continue following
Jesus, as He instructed the church in Ephesus, "Be faithful until
death, and I will give you the crown of life" Revelation 2:10.
Get back to the basics and read, study and obey God's Word.
Do you believe that Jesus is both Lord and Christ? ... What'
shall you do?

Appoint 'Water Watcher'

To Keep Kids Water-Safe


With hot weather and pool
time here, the Florida Depart-
ment of Health asks Floridians
and visitors to save a life and
designate a "water watcher"
when children are participating
in water activities.
All across Florida, children
will spend the hot days of sum-
mer playing in pool areas and
swimming and jumping into the
cool water, but despite the fun,
pool safety is a serious subject
and must be made a top priority.
According to the Department
of Health's Office of Injury
Prevention, drowning is the
second leading cause of acci-
dental death in the United
States for children between the
ages of 1 and 4, with Florida
leading the nation. Florida resi-
dents under the age of 10 are
most likely to drown in a swim-
ming pool.
"In Florida, we lose four
classrooms of Pre-K children
every year to drowning," says
Lisa Vanderwerf-Hourigan, di-
rector of the Office of Injury
Prevention. "By designating a
water watcher, you can ensure
you have the proper supervision
for children in or around water."
Three basic layers of pool
safety will help keep children
who are swimming safe year-
round:


Supervision: Children
should never be allowed in the
pool area without an adult
responsible for supervision.
Supervision is the most critical
layer of protection. Designate a
"water watcher."
Barriers: A barrier is an
object or device that physically
blocks children from entering
the pool area. For your home,
child-proof locks and door
alarms on all doors that open to
the outside; and for the pool
area, a fence with a self-closing
and self-latching gate, and gate
and pool alarms. The Residen-
tial Swimming Pool Safety Act
(Chapter 515, Florida Statutes)
requires at least one physical
barrier for pools built after
2000. More than 90 percent of
Florida's home swimming
pools were built before the law.
Emergency Preparedness:
Always be prepared for a water
emergency. Learn life-saving
skills, know proper emergency.
procedures and keep a phone in
the pool area in case you need
to call 911. Many organizations
offer cardiopulmonary resusci-
tation (CPR) and rescue-tech-
nique classes at little or no cost.
Finally, enroll your children in
age-appropriate swimming les-
sons.


Success is to be measured not so much by the position-
that one has reached in life as by the obstacles he has
overcome trying to succeed.
